Wegmans has been at the center of a major lawsuit over claims the chain sold overpriced wedding cakes in order to profit from a lawsuit brought by a mother of two children, who said the company gave her the wrong birthday cake in 2013 and failed to provide her with a refund after she complained.
The company has been accused of paying off a woman’s lawsuit against it for $1 million, but in October the company settled with the woman, who also filed a civil lawsuit against Wegman.
In October, the company announced it would donate the money to charity, which it has also said will be used to cover legal fees.
The news of the settlement comes on the heels of Wegmann agreeing to pay $4 million to settle a class action lawsuit filed against it by an alleged customer who claimed she was pressured to buy a product from Wegma for her child, but instead purchased the same product from another competitor instead.
“Wegmans is committed to doing everything we can to support the victims of the 2016 sexual assault and harassment epidemic, including the families who suffered through it,” Wegmas CEO Steve Hagen said in a statement.
